Mitral Valve Simulation Solutions

The customizable transcatheter mitral heart valve simulated use solutions from BDC Laboratories provide a turnkey platform to evaluate both mitral valve replacement (TMVR) and mitral valve repair technologies.

  • Mitral Valve Replacement
  • Leaflet Plication / Mitral Valve Leaflet Clips
  • Leaflet Space Occupiers
  • Annuloplasty Rings and Bands
  • Coronary Sinus Annuloplasty / Reshaping
  • Chordae Replacement

The mitral valve simulation solution consists of the right atrium, left atrium, left ventricle, functioning silicone mitral valve with chordae, inferior vena cava and the femoral veins. Either a pre-defined septal hole or replaceable, puncturable septum is present between the left atrium and the right atrium. The model facilitates transcatheter delivery system access with integrated hemostatic valves at the femoral veins and transapically. Additional, custom access approaches such as direct aortic and subclavian routes can also be integrated into the simulated use system.

Features and Benefits

  • Clinically relevant bench model for development activities, education and physician training
  • Clear heart model allows visibility of the mitral valve and the replacement/repair implant and clear, compliant silicone vasculature allows visibility of the delivery system
  • Functional silicone mitral valve with chordae is easily installed/removed
  • Mitral Valve Chordae can be adjusted and tensioned to affect valve performance
  • Mitral Valve features realistic, valve movement and leaflet geometry
  • Integrated hemostatic valves accommodate delivery system entry via femoral and transapically access
  • Drip tray catches any fluid spills during testing and intervention simulations
  • Silicone vasculature supports ensures the anatomical model retains its 3D configuration during procedures
  • Portable, with optional rugged, hard-sided travel case for air-travel
  • Optional PD-0750-M Portable Pulse Duplicator offers temperature-controlled, clinically relevant pulsatile environment
